Mittens Make It Up

The winter storm watch continued at -14°C today. When you’re inside, the sun fools you with the warmth of its colour, until you step outside and feel the bite of the wind.

I spent an hour-and-a-half looking for various things and running errands downtown. The streets were packed, the stores were packed, and I found nothing.

So I spent a stupid amount of money on these awesome mittens at Club Monaco. I actually walked out of the store and out of the mall when I found them, for fear that I would purchase them, but alas, here they are on my hands. I had to decide between the white and black stripes, the grey and black stripes, and the flat grey ones, but since most of my clothing is neutral, I decided on the flashiest pair. The open hole for the fingers makes iPod and camera manipulation easy. They’re 100% cashmere; thin enough to wear indoors or inside your coat pocket.

So it wasn’t a total waste of a day.


  1. And the xmas music begins. I can’t believe some people are done xmas shopping.

    Cashmere is warm. Good for the season.

  2. I believe how some people are done Christmas shopping. It’s already insane in the stores. Even the is starting to run low.

    And I never would have believed how warm this material is, until I slipped on these paper thin mitts and felt the drastic difference between the protected palms and the unprotected fingers.

  3. Love ’em. If I could afford to shop at CM, I totally would.

    The winter here has been wimpy as yet. Once it got down to 15F, and snow had been in effect, the weather went back up to 45 the next (NIGHT) day and melted all of the snow. Now there’s slush and a bunch of black ice on the roads.

  4. I don’t shop at CM often, and if I do, it has to be on sale.

    Perhaps the winter here is making up for the one down there.

  5. Personally I love the mittens bro. I noticed them during our meal after the photo session, but forgot to ask about them.
